The Old Rooftop Antennas Are Returning

Apr 9, 2008
Last year, my husband and I were having a walk around the subdivision. As we likely do, we talked about all the houses and what we like and don't like about each one. Even though we see the same houses each time we take a stroll, we sometimes experience something new to chat about.

During a particular jog, we saw something interesting on top of one of the neighbors' roof. It was a antenna and it looked similar to one of those old-fashioned antennas everyone used to use instead of getting cable.

The difference was that it was much littler than the old-fashioned ones. I was speculative to why they had it because I thought just about either everyone had cable, satellite or an indoor rabbit ears.

A few weeks after, I was outside gardening and that same person happened to drive by the house. I waved and then decided to walk over to him. I asked him that I had seen the new antenna on his roof.

He told me that it was an HD antenna. Then he let me know that he found out you can place it on your roof and it will pick up HD signals just like the Satellite provider sends out.

The only difference is that you get clearer pictures and you don't have to pay per month for it like you do with dish. I thought it was fascinating and later that day, I told my spouse what the neighbor said.

My husband said that it likely doesn't come in clear when there is a bad storm or high winds. I was curious about that because why would he want an HD signal that was not consistent. I went on the Net and found out that numerous of the antennas are strong enough to keep their HD signals even in storms.

The price of them was not very much money either and we would pay for it in a few months time in the total that we pay monthly to the satellite company.

I ran it by my husband and then bought it. Now, we also have an antenna on our roof and it really is wonderful to receive HD channels without relying on the dish co.'s monthly fee.

I saw my neighbour shortly after I put up the antenna and he noticed. He was joyful that he was able to let me know about it and asked if I was satisfied. I let him know that I was thrilled, appreciated the information and the extra savings each period!
